  1. It's also one of culture. The NHL is a Canadian created league where a point system is used to track standings. The CFL uses the same system, and it's no doubt influenced by British sports standings. NBA is an American league and follows the American system of using percentage for standings. It makes no difference in how teams are ranked, ties in a percentage system are counted as .5 and you still get the same results.
  2. I'm going to guess a chrome helmet with the Browns logo etched over top of it...
  3. It's a all a moot point, it's only a matter of time before the entire middle-east is embroiled in a total war sectarian conflict. The World Cup will never be played Qatar....
  4. Ooo, I got one. Let me set this one up.... battfan888 posted a podcast of his that talked about the Belleville Bulls move to Hamilton. NaughtyDog posted his review of it... Whereas battfan888 decided to actually defend his podcast guest... Yep there you go folks, a franchise relocation is exactly like finding out you have a terminal illness. You can read the whole thing here....
  5. I don't think they actually said 'stripe'. I think it's just a shadow cast from the word 'black'....
  6. Of course I'm not sure what a pornlit about baseball pullovers has to do with weird comments on a hockey board...
  7. If we keep it up then the thread will end up Jack-jacked.I was toying with idea of putting a bunch of jack related pics on here...Jack Sparrow, Jack Abbott, Jack Kennedy, jacks, Jax, Columbus Blue Jackets, but that is the winner right there....
  8. I don't know if it's just me, but I keep reading this as #GATEWAY TO HELL...
  9. Aren't the Bulldogs moving? That opens up the Hamilton market... I believe Erie was rumoured to be moving to Hamilton - that's part of the surprise. It's a shame though because I absolutely love the "retro" Bulls look. I hope those colours eventually transfer over to the Bulldogs. I can confirm unreservedly with absolute certainty they will be keeping their current AHL uniforms (minus the Canadiens patch) for next season... How will Bulldogs' changes affect fans?
  10. When news broke about the AHL Bulldogs moving, there was also news that the OHL was going to replace it. The surprise is that it's Belleville and not Erie.
  11. They're keeping the same colours and uniform for next season, but after that it might change. The logo of course is staying the same, why change one of the best logos in all of hockey?
  12. It's one of those trivia things that ultimately has no bearing on the design choices and only matters to the most pedantic.
  13. I hate this idea. I hate it so very, very much. Same. By this logic, the Blackhawks logo is one of the worst in sports. No, the Blackhawks logo wasn't that hard to draw, even for an artistic challenged person like me. The ones that always gave me fits was the Buffalo Sabres...and all the wordmark logos...
  14. I mean, I guess the first one's excusable if you don't follow NASCAR, but umm, Alex Morgan's been everywhere since the 2011 Women's World Cup. So who is Alex Morgan again for which World Cup?
  15. Let me guess, you're a helvetia fundamentalist. "Death to false fonts!"
  16. Some sneak peeks of the signature series... Saskatchewan.... Toronto... Toronto is probably one of only two teams that can pull off a white helmet (the other being Montreal, which should tell you what I think of B.C.'s helmet). Saskatchewan looks like they are going to have an all silver/grey uniform (unless that's supposed to be a black & white photo, in which case, why?). Nobody can pull off that look....
  17. Washington Rednecks, I like the sound of that...
  18. Actually no. Three of the leagues came into being after the process of giving nicknames to teams were firmly entrenched. So no American football teams, no basketball teams ever had a situation were they didn't have a nickname. One lone hockey team predates the NHL in that era and it was born as the Canadiens and added Montreal later. I don't know about the oldest baseball teams but the only current professional team I know of that didn't start with the nickname is the Hamilton Tiger-Cats which came into being as the Hamilton Foot Ball Club in 1869 and didn't adopt a nickname until 1873, the same year the Argonauts came into being which like the Montreal Canadiens, started off with the nickname and added Toronto later.
  19. The flaw in the plan is that Lakers don't end up in Minnesota. I think it should go... New Orleans becomes the Jazz Utah becomes the Timberwolves Minnesota becomes the Lakers Lakers become the Clippers Clippers become the Pelicans The flaw is that some people aren't getting that he was joking.The flaw is that you think that some people are actually being serious....

  21. That really only applies to other hockey teams. The whole reason there was a Connecticut Whale was because the NHL nixed the Hartford Whalers as a name, however the NHL never complained to MLB when their Denver expansion franchise adopted the Colorado Rockies moniker. You're also you're not going to see too many leagues complaining about high schools using their logos. For one it's free advertising, another is that the schools don't make a ton of money from it, and thirdly it's bad optics to be suing high schools over copyright infringement.
  22. Why would they? They have one of the most unique helmets in the league and why screw that up? Being unique doesn't make it good. Even if they screw it up, it would still be an improvement....
  23. I can't say I miss any old stadiums. I've been to three old arenas that used to house NHL teams (Hamilton Forum, Maple Leaf Gardens, Ottawa Civic Centre) and two stadiums that housed CFL teams (Ivor Wynne Stadium and Exhibition Stadium). They were all old and well past their glory days and their replacements couldn't come fast enough...
